By Segun Ojo, Kaduna
A Nigeria Airline, Med-View, Tuesday flagged-off its Lagos-Kaduna route to ease stress associated with flying directly to Kaduna from Lagos and vice-versa.
Head of Engineering of the airline, Engineer Lookman Animashaun, said the airline operators promising to dominate the route with friendly packages without compromising international standard.
Engr. Lookman said the 150 sitting capacity Boeing 737-400, which arrived Kaduna from Lagos at about 9:00 am yesterday, is scheduled to fly Lagos-Kaduna and Kaduna-Lagos four times in a week; Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Aircraft will depart Lagos 7:30 and depart Kaduna by 9:15 on those days
He said, “we are having four flights weekly; Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Aircraft will depart Lagos 7:30 and depart Kaduna by 9:15 on those days.
“Med-View is one airline that has taken the area of making sure that we give the best opportunity to fly around the country comfortably and safely. As you can see from our opening, we are airline of Nigeria and as such we should be seen all over the country which is what has taken us to Kaduna.”
He urged Nigerians not to be afraid of flying because of maintenance problem, saying “Nigerians who will fly will continue to fly and we at Med-View will encourage them to fly because it remains the safest means of transportation all over the world.
“Med-View Airline do not compromise on maintenance and definitely we will not compromise on safety. We maintain our aircrafts according to regulations and as at when due.
On security of passengers, he said “we take proper check of every single thing that entering the plane. Apart from electronic checking equipment, we also don’t compromise our manual checks and that is why you see female security personnel checking female passengers while male are checking males. All this is to ensure safety while on board the plane.
“What makes Med-View different is on time departure. No other Nigeria airline has been able to beat that as at today and we will continue to do that in Kaduna. So, Med-View is here to dominate Kaduna.
“Most people believe that between Kaduna and Abuja by road is just two hours. But between kaduna and Lagos is about an hour flight. When people know that when they get to the airport and see that there is a flight directly to Kaduna or directly to Lagos, they will be encouraged to fly with us and that will also increase the number of people that will be coming to Kaduna,” he stressed.
